War reconnaissance exhibition

History enthusiasts will be utterly delighted with this special exhibition on the First World War and how the conflict directly sparked the coming-of-age of aerial reconnaissance over the field of battle.

For this dramatic period of human history was the first time that photographs had been taken from above the fighting and relayed to commanders, giving them an accurate picture of the terrain and enemy dispositions as they planned their attacks.

This exhibition commemorates the efforts of brave pilots who flew so close to the danger in an effort to get the best available information, and features a number of photographs and maps loaned by the descendents of those reconnaissance officers.

Visitors can enjoy the event while it runs from January 11th to February 26th at the Dimbola Museum, which is open from Tuesday to Sunday 10am until 4pm. The venue is at Terrace Lane in Freshwater Bay.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801682231-ADNFCR
